Hanging wooden ceiling as architectural accent: house in South Korea

wooden ceiling suspended modern detached house in South Korea


In South Korea, a futuristic wood house creates a link between tradition and modernity. The building is an excellent example of modern creative architecture. The wooden facade, the traditional Gipfeldach for South Korea and the abundant glazed construction make the family home a real eye-catcher. But the suspended wooden ceiling is clearly the building element that visually enhances the home both inside and out.

JK-AR architects have tried to interpret the traditional architecture of modern South Korea. South Koreans have built wooden houses for more than 1,500 years. Over the last hundred years, however, the population has almost completely depleted the country's natural resources. Forests have been progressively converted to agricultural land and intensively exploited. At the beginning of the last century, wood from other countries could only be bought at a much higher price. Concrete then demanded a cheap alternative and people quickly started building concrete houses. Over time, the typical South Korean city has become a concrete jungle.

The architects of the JK-AR now wanted to revive the traditional architecture of the region and adapt it to the needs of the contemporary family. The wooden structure is essentially the same as it was a thousand years ago: a gabled roof and wooden walls. In all cases, the architects insulated the building with pressed wood and cork plates, and the facade was also lined with transparent plastic. In this way, the construction was made airtight, so that it does not enter the house in strong or wet winds in the rain and snow.

But the absolute highlight is the suspended ceiling, which creatively combines new and old. Three futuristic trees connect their "branches" to the ceiling of the house. This creates different, very natural shapes. The trees and their branches are made of plywood panels. The individual elements were simply assembled and bolted to the wooden ceiling with bolts.

The suspended wooden ceiling is a decorative element that spices up the house during the day and evening. The large skylights let in a lot of sun and create with the wooden ceiling an exciting game of light and shadow. In the evening, the lighting effectively stages the suspended ceiling.

The wooden ceiling is a real eye-catcher. The architects kept the furniture simple to give them a better appearance. The living room on the ground floor has been arranged sparingly. A dining table for six, an antique dresser, a small sofa and a cumbersome kitchen complete the program of life. In addition, the architects have created additional storage space options that are discreetly installed in the background.

The house has a limited living space of almost 60 square meters, but the rooms are much wider and deeper thanks to the high ceiling. Overall, the building has two floors. The ground floor is open, where are the kitchen, the living room and the dining room. The upper floor is divided into several areas. A wooden staircase leads to the second floor, where there is room for a small bedroom and an office. Perfect for a couple who wants to escape the chaos of the big city and build a refuge in the countryside.

The wooden house with futuristic ceiling design is an excellent example of traditional architecture with a modern twist.
